UNC Greensboro offers courses required for admission to medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary, occupational therapy or physical therapy schools, or as needed for entrance into law school. A suggested two-year pre-engineering curriculum prepares students to transfer to schools with engineering programs.
At UNC Greensboro, Preprofessional Programs are not majors in which degrees can be earned nor do they prescribe courses required for graduation. Rather, these “Programs” are meant to identify students with an interest in applying to a post-graduate professional school in the health sciences, engineering or law. Therefore, students who choose to designate an interest track must still select an academic area of study as their major.
Students elect to become associated with the Preprofessional Programs by selecting an interest track which matches their future career aspirations (see below for list of possible tracks). Making this election through a form provided on the SpartanConnect website then allows UNC Greensboro to provide targeted advising and support to assist students in preparing for application to their post-graduate schools of choice. The election form can be accessed via the following link: https://spartancentral.uncg.edu/forms/pre-professional-interest-tracks/
Students interested in designating a preprofessional interest track are urged to seek advising early in their academic careers.
